At the end of the hallway, there is a picture of the Bower Wagon Factory. The Bower's made the little wagon for their children in 1912, which was a replica of their big wagon.

Mr. Frew served in the Sioux Indian War of 1876, riding behind Buffalo Bill Cody as a scout. Men became so hungry during this campaign that they had to result to eating their horses.
